Last month, I ran a survey to ask what teachers would want to see in a revised A-Level Music Technology. I included information from this survey in a letter of support for the qualification.
At the time of writing, Edexcel has submitted their revised proposal to Ofqual and are waiting to hear if the qualification will be approved. Due to the impending general election, Ofqual will not make an announcement about this until May.
While we wait to find out if the course will run, why not have a look at what teachers asked for in the survey? You can access the raw data here and I’ve created a Wordle below. I was really pleased to see that the words ‘music’ and ‘sound’ were some of the most used terms. I also found it interesting that ‘A2’ was referred to so much. Could this be a sign that this is where teachers have the most concern?
